Suffolk Carbon Charter 2023 Gold
This carbon charter supports and celebrates the efforts of local businesses working towards greater sustainability. Gold Level holders must exemplify best practice and clearly show a significant reduction in carbon emissions, above and beyond that achieved at Bronze and Silver Level.
FORS Gold Award
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme Gold Award is only awarded to the most exceptional operators. To meet the exacting targets of the scheme, which exceed those for the Bronze and Silver Awards, we have had to thoroughly demonstrate our commitment to making our fleet safer, smarter and greener.
BSI ISO 6001
This standard is focused on the responsible sourcing of construction materials. By implementing this framework, we ensure that our organisation and supply chain source products ethically and sustainably.
BSI ISO 9001
ISO 9001 is the international standard for quality management. To meet its requirements, we have created a plan to ensure that customers’ expectations for quality and consistency are met, each and every time.
BSI ISO 14001
ISO 14001 is the globally recognised standard for environmental management. By putting this structure in place, we are able to continually record, monitor and improve our environmental processes.
BSI ISO 45001
ISO 45001 is the standard for occupational health and safety, accepted across the world. It sets in place a system of best practice procedures to reduce the possibility of incidents and regulatory breaches.
BSI ISO 50001
This is the international standard for energy management. This accreditation demonstrates that we continually monitor and improve our energy performance. This includes analysing ways to reduce wastage and consumption at every stage of production.

World renowned projects

Projects include The Gherkin, The Shard, The London Olympic Stadium, Canary Wharf, and both Heathrow and Stansted Airports.
Landmark developments such as Google’s UK headquarters need construction materials that can match the quality of the architectural vision. When it came to finding the ideal concrete block partner for this innovative project, contractors Lyons & Annoot turned to Lignacite.
When Lyons & Annoot was commissioned to work on the massive regeneration of The Whiteley, it turned to Lignacite to provide concrete blocks that meet the project’s strict weight requirements.
